This is one cool onside kick. I had to watch it in slow motion to fully appreciate what the kicker did.
Too bad the Owls couldn’t score again. Something that nifty deserves a reward.

Gameday is coming.
Dude has to have a futbol background — not uncommon for kickers obviously, but have never seen any with the skills or stones to try that. Did you see the smirk on the ref’s face. He’d not see that, either.
Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly would approve.
I’ve been wondering why someone hasn’t done this sooner. I remember our HS soccer team had a couple of guys from Mexico. They did stuff like this and we’d just stare.
Nicely done. No way you expect a right footed kicker to use his right foot and go left like that.
Yeah, and the formation was all set up on the right side, too, so they gambled that he’d do it perfectly—which he did.
Anyone with soccer skills can do this on the soccer field with a soccer ball. However doing this with an egg shaped ball from a tee with the game on the line, now that is impressive.
Arsenal and the Dawgs are top of the table.
